Meet our Museum mascot, Arthur a stuffed Siberian brown bear with his very own Twitter account and lots of famous friends!

A well loved bear by many residents of Haslemere over the years, Arthur is a prime example of the Victorian attitude to wildlife – his original role in life was as a dumb waiter. Nowadays the museum operates a programme of preservation and natural history research.

See what he is up to and follow him on Twitter tell him all about your day at the Museum!

Here is Arthur with some of his famous friends
